PIQUA — The Friends of the Piqua Public Library are happy to host the Rock Island Plow Company at the library at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 21, as part of its Library Lounge Series.
This is the second appearance at the library by this popular bluegrass band; last year’s show was standing room only. The concert is free and open to the public.
The Rock Island Plow Company, also known as RIPCO, performs bluegrass music with respect for tradition while embracing the future, and is proud to be a part of the revitalization of bluegrass in America’s heartland.
The group is made up of Stan Taylor on mandolin, Rick Hagens on the doghouse bass, and 19-year-old Houston Sloan on banjo. The newest member of the group is 20-year-old Trent Williams, a powerful Larry Sparks-style singer and an accomplished musician on guitar, dobro, and mandolin. Trent’s powerful voice mixed with Stan’s high tenor will make for a great night for all fans of all kinds of music.
Please join us in the lobby of the library, located at 116 W. High St. in the historic Fort Piqua Plaza.
